Ugliest Cities In the World

The Top Ten

1 Chittagong, Bangladesh
2 Mogadishu, Somalia Mogadishu, Somalia

Gotta love bombings

3 Detroit, USA Detroit, USA

Come on seriously Detroit is not that ugly. Crime is ugly but not the skyline. Without those abandoned building of course!

So many ghettos, it's crazy.

Detroit is SUPER UGLY!
TOO much Crime
Too many Abandoned Place!
Population GOES LOWER!
Too many Graffiti!
Someone will steal your car and T.V.!
Empty Cities!
Don't go to Detroit!

4 Karachi, Pakistan Karachi, Pakistan
5 Guatemala City, Guatemala
6 Mexico City, Mexico Mexico City, Mexico Mexico City, or the City of Mexico, is the capital of Mexico and the most populous city in North America.

It is one of the least safest cities in the world and it is ugly. Nobody wants to go there it is boring, dangerous, ugly and people you'd robe your car and steel something. I wish Mexico will be a safer country

I've been there. And my parents grew up there. Everyone robs your car, with you in it. And they brake your bicycle chain and steel it, and you have to but a chain around the steering wheel conected to something, and the people will still break it, and most of the buildings built after like 1950's are all ugly, and the Mexican government sucks, and its currupt and I hate the Mexican Government. And there's garbage on the street everywhere you go, and to much traffic and peope. I think the only nice building is the Basilica of Guadalupe, and the original one. Even the government building is ugly, and the tallest building in the city is very ugly too.

7 Amman, Jordan

I live in Jordan and find this very offensive, it’s a very beautiful country

I’m a Jordanian citizen, it’s very chaotic and there’s a lot of traffic and it’s truly overpopulated

8 São Paulo, Brazil

São Paulo is the worst agressive poluted and the ugliest of all.

9 Caracas, Venezuela

Too ugly Too much crimes - SpencerJC

10 Manila, Philippines

Absolutely disgusting city!


The Contenders

11 Luanda, Angola

12 Chisinau, Moldova Chisinau, Moldova Chișinău, also known as Kishinev, also referred to as Kishineu, is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Moldova.
13 Houston, USA Houston, USA Houston is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Texas and the fourth most populous city in the United States, with a census-estimated population of 2.312 million in 2017. It is the most populous city in the Southern United States and on the Gulf Coast of the United States.

Houston we have a problem: You're ugly.

14 Lagos, Nigeria

Chaos, top to bottom. visually and functionally

15 Prague, Czech Republic Prague, Czech Republic

I never think Prague is ugly but the people are very rude. It is very safe capital. Don't believe the people who think Prague is ugly. Very beautiful. It shouldn't be on the list

Prague is not ugly
Is just that the people are so unfriendly
Prague is so beautiful

16 Los Angeles, USA Los Angeles, USA

New York has more graffiti

Sooo many graffiti everywhere in LA - SpencerJC

17 Rio De Janeiro, Brazil Rio De Janeiro, Brazil Rio de Janeiro, or simply Rio, is anchor to the Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area and the second-most populous municipality in Brazil and the sixth-most populous in the Americas.
18 Milan, Italy
19 Pyongyang, North Korea Pyongyang, North Korea

The seas of seemingly randomly placed soviet apartments are bad enough, but the Ryugyong Hotel is the ugliest building on earth, and the propagandist statues on every corner and random highways to nowhere don't help either. Overall looks like a 10 year old designed this city before Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il came in and built statues of themselves everywhere. BLEH!

20 Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
21 Wellington, New Zealand Wellington, New Zealand
22 New York, USA

Dirty, chaotic, people selling everything and anything on the streets... Horrible!

Take this off the list!

It has its ugly parts but the true ugly is west of the Hudson... (Newark, Elizabeth, etc.)

Its super ugly

23 London, England London, England London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.
24 Frankfurt, Germany

I should make a movie called "Eyesores of Frankfurt". "Wonderful" modern post-war architecture with mold and rust everywhere.

25 Moscow, Russia Moscow, Russia
26 Lahore, Pakistan

Worst city everrr

27 Besancon, Franche-Comte
28 Vancouver, Canada Vancouver, Canada Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in western Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia.

What! This is stupid! Seattle is so much more dirty! Vancouver has mountains and ocean. How the bear shiiit does this make sense. Take this off this list.!.!.!

This city sucks, everyone thinks its beautiful, but its full of bias Vancouver fanboys who CLEARLY haven't been to Canada's 2 REAL major cities (Toronto & Montreal) don't go here, its ugly in reality

29 Tehran, Iran
30 Bangui, Central African Republic

Bunch of proverty and war - toshdeluxe

31 Podgorica, Montenegro Podgorica, Montenegro

Capital city with no urbanistic plan with the mixture of communist and modern architecture

32 Montevideo, Uruguay
33 Compton, USA
34 Brooklyn, USA
35 Mannheim, Germany

Mannheim is arguably the ugliest city in Germany. Like many German cities, Mannheim was destroyed by Allied bombings in the Second World War and it was rebuilt in an ugly post-war style, not to mention it was made to be car-friendly like many cities at the time. It does not look like an old-world European city at all, it looks like an overgrown suburb built in the post-war years.

If you want to see a "German" city in terms of architecture, go to either Strasbourg or Metz in France. Both are far more beautiful and are much more pedestrian friendly than many German cities.

36 Islamabad, Pakistan Islamabad, Pakistan

Worst city ever should be placed on number1

37 Paris, France Paris, France Paris is the capital and most populous city of France, with an area of 105 square kilometres and an official estimated population of 2,140,526 residents as of 1 January 2019. Since the 17th century, Paris has been one of Europe's major centres of finance, diplomacy, commerce, fashion, science, and the more.

Worst city eveerr

38 Sana'a, Yemen
39 Las Vegas, USA Las Vegas, USA Las Vegas, officially the City of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County.
